Breeding is very easy and the fish will start at a very small size. When the fish is young it the spawning is relatively small (30-40 eggs), but it does increase with size as the fish mature. The fish will make use of any flat surface to place their eggs, but we have found a clay pot to be the favorite option.
Females tend to have more red on their bellies, and males more red on the tips of their dorsal and anal fins.
Red Points are very good parents and will guard the fry for about 2 weeks after they become free swimming. Baby brine shrimp are a great first food and the fry will grow very quickly if provided with ample food and regular water changes.
